All sin breaches our relationship with God, but we must never think that the Lord will refuse us if we humble ourselves and return to Him with true contrition.
He longs to take us back, and His willingness to forgive His children is infinite.
No matter where we are or what we have done, we can be confident that God will pardon us if we forsake our sin and turn to Christ alone for our pardon. That is the magnitude of His grace. That is the mercy of the God whom we serve in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Questions for Reflection
- How do you think of God’s grace and mercy alongside His justice?
- What is the key to the Lord taking us back?
